I just installed Starship Troopers Demo. I have set all settings inc audio+EAX on max. I play the game and after 30 secs or so while shooting the system suddenly freezes with a continues peep noise then the BSOD with the message Machine_Check_Exception.

This is the only time ive got a BSOD in a game. I play CS:S, BF2.... and no BSOD.

Any one have any idea why i get this BSOD?

thanks

All i can say is i get it as well. The only way to combat this is a) disable EAX and put sound on low quality, b)don't continously shoot things.

I can only see one set of drivers which are BETA. Are those the ones you are using now?
